‘ the ‘the most with temperatures 6—8 for the most part. through tuesday evening we will see the mist and fog building quickly in parts of england and wales. less in the way of mist and fog for northern ireland and scotland. with high pressure staying with us through the middle part of the week, no great changes in the forecast for the next few days. a front sitting out to the far north—west but for much of the country a scene like this one, some dense fog around, especially across central parts of england and wales. that could cause disruption if you have plans to travel by air or road, watch out, by wednesday morning, dense fog in england and wales in particular. further north—west, more cloud, less blog, but a few showers in the west of scotland where it will be breezy at times but light winds and plenty of sunshine on offer. where the fog lingers during the day in a few prone spots in england and wales, those temperatures will struggle at a few degrees above freezing, milder to the north—west. towards the end of

this week, spot the difference! high pressure in charge, variable amounts of cloud, a bit by watch forthe -;....,,, f f , 5 f" watch forthe potentialmaww ’ f , 5 f" watch forthe potential of"**** f f , 5 5' so watch out for the potential of some mist and fog then spoke for much of the week ahead. hello. this is bbc news with ben brown. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines: fans travel to george michael's homes in london and oxfordshire to pay their respects as the world remembers him. russia says the bodies of 11 victims of the military plane crash in the black sea have been recovered and flown back to moscow. all 92 passengers and crew on board died when it came down shortly after taking off from sochi. at least four people are killed in the manila area as a powerful typhoon crosses the philippines‘ capital. bargain hunters turn out for boxing day sales but it's thought many have stayed home
11:32 pm
after already splurging on pre—christmas discounts. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the political commentator, jo phillips, and the political editor of the sunday mirror and sunday people, nigel nelson. tomorrow's front pages: a picture of george michael dominates the front page of the i — with the paper focusing on the charitable donations made by the pop superstar. meanwhile, the mirror has speculation about how the musician died. the former wham frontman, is also pictured in the telegraph. but the paper's main story, is a warning from england's chief nursing officer that the nhs should spend more money looking after patients in their own homes. and finally the express leads with a report from a pro—brexit campaign group which claims
11:33 pm
that the uk will be at least a50 million pounds a week better off, after leaving the european union. the times‘s main story claims the nuclear safety regulator has turned a blind eye to dozens of serious mistakes at power plants and military bases. the guardian says nhs services for children with mental health needs are so substandard they are prolonging their suffering. and the sun dedicates its front page to george michael — showing a picture of him in his heyday, the headline says you were someone special, george. so let's begin. the papers, the tabloids were not a lwa ys the papers, the tabloids were not always particularly kind to george michael but in death they what is interesting about the sun and the daily mirror is that they
11:34 pm
choose to different front pages. the sun shows george michael in his heyday, the picture is some years old. the mirror has chosen a picture of where george michael is looking fat and bloated and it is all recent picture. the sun, inside, shows that picture. the sun, inside, shows that picture also but it isn't the way they chose their front pages. over they chose their front pages. over the years, george michael has done enough things to keep himself in the news. one would argue that what happens with celebrities is that when he was finally caught by a los angeles police officer in a lavatory in la, thejob until then had been beefy, heterosexual man and that helped him to come out. from what he
11:35 pm
has said since, he was quite pleased to come out because he worried about what would happen to his career if people knew he was gay. the mirror front page, they say they have details of his death. as nigel was suggesting, quite different... details of his death. as nigel was suggesting, quite different. . m details of his death. as nigel was suggesting, quite different... it is veering into the not quite so a a idolising. his lover told the paper told him how he found him dead on christmas day and revelations from apparently friends saying he had been hosting wild all—night parties before his death. the inevitable commentary of local people who spotted him in a restaurant. and thatis spotted him in a restaurant. and that is probably where that teacher
11:36 pm
came from. that picture they say is george michael in september. exactly. in the mirror, from tony parson, who was george michael's higher refund but he wrote this in 2011 when george michael was actually dying from pneumonia in a vienna hospital and it was about the 30 years he had known him and he says that george went from being too fat, ron smart too stupid, from straight to overtly gay, from a responsible driver to someone who crashed into a shop. it is that celebrity and all the interviews i heard from george michael, there was this conundrum, this lack of self—confidence despite this amazing talent. "in the mirror, in his
11:37 pm
words, there is no such thing as a relu cta nt words, there is no such thing as a reluctant star, stars are almost a lwa ys reluctant star, stars are almost always people who want to make up for their weaknesses by being loved by the public and i no exception. it is interesting he had that tag. what he really wanted was claimed, that he really wanted was claimed, that he craved it, never thinking what fame brought and what it meant. with an came a nice big house, any car he wanted. ina an came a nice big house, any car he wanted. in a sense, he was quite naive about his celebrity and then discovered some of the advantages. he was never quite sure of himself. but he found it hard to cope with fame, having achieved it. yes, that's right. and a lot of the things he kept secret. one of the interesting quote from the daily
11:38 pm
mirror is that everything had been very complicated recently. we did not know what that means. what was quite behind george michael's death but there seems to be something going on. the high talk about what an amazing philanthropist he was. the blakey did for charity without being noticed. again, it goes back to that being, that is the conundrum. someone who wanted fame, as someone conundrum. someone who wanted fame, as someone who got huge wealth through his fame and then was giving money away and millions and millions of pounds to charities. he gave all the royalties from jesus to a child, a huge hit, to a charity. apparently he gave a complete stranger, a woman he gave a complete stranger, a woman he watched on tv programme he was trying to get money for a programme
11:39 pm
and he gave her money. he gave a lot for the nhs. generous with text. £500 to one. we did not know his wishes but there is a different picture of him. i had that dominates more than the bloated... a wonderful singer and star who sadly died at the age of 53. the times, their main story is about the nuclear industry and the safety regulator they say is accused of turning a blind i? the things they turned the blind eye to on the surface — a torpedo going up in another. the radioactive material involved in accidents on the roads
11:40 pm
and this stuff spilling out which they said was not dangerous at all and everything was fine. but the idea of a torpedo floating around does not sound that harmless but, again, that does not know. i do not know whether it patted out or whatever. but the times have a lot of instances they have here that are enough that if you were a campaigner against regulate loads being hauled up against regulate loads being hauled up and down the countries in trains on roads, this gives your own —— an awful lot of ammunition. still in the times, you can plead guilty online to speed the wheels of justice? this is part of the prison reform bill. to keep minor offenders out of the court system. offences
11:41 pm
like tv licence evasion, motoring, traffic events, fare dodging, the plan is that some of these could be internet based administrative and you would be able to logon, view the penalty, accepted the conviction and pay, rather like you do, i think, for most fixed penalty parking fines. but the association is concerned and say it isjustice being done outside public scrutiny and some offenders will plead guilty when they should not but on the other hand, this could free up the delays... surely you can say that p0p: delays... surely you can say that p°p.9uv delays... surely you can say that pop, guv and payet online. —— payee it online. but if you are not
11:42 pm
guilty... presumably you can contest it. fair point. the telegraph have a story about how bottas in towns and cities with large woodland communities were there are about electoral fraud may need to show their passport or driving licences before they can vote? this is a scandal. first of all, targeting muslim areas but what they would argue is that they are targeting areas where there is a lot of electoral fraud and they happen to be muslim areas. but the bit that gets to me is that people should bring id to vote. voting is a bright and the right people in this country who do not have a passport, driving licences, credit card and you cannot say you disenfranchise these people.
11:43 pm
having a new system of voting, whether it is electronic and a secure, is one thing but the idea of making people produce things they may not have two exercise of the right to vote is not on. id cards via the back door. it is this targeting of particular ethnic areas that will mean an outrage. this is not acceptable. we are reaching the end of the brexit a year...|j not acceptable. we are reaching the end of the brexit a year... i think 2017 will be pretty much about brexit as well! the express have got the eu - brexit as well! the express have got the eu — brexit is going to save us £450 billion per week. 0h, the eu — brexit is going to save us £450 billion per week. oh, yes and if you read it the story is for change britain which was vote leave.
11:44 pm
they are sensible reputable people by this report is like saying i have been to the sale, i have got this fantastic bargain look how much i saved but not looking at how much you actually have spent. it could — could, deliver and free burdens and regulations and allow the uk to fords new trade deals and they say figures are very conservatives and gdp could be boosted by another 80.5 billion and so on and so on but none of this talks about what we get currently from the eu in terms of research grant... it is a wish list. if we do a deal with the tahrir, if we do if we do a deal with the tahrir, if wedoa if we do a deal with the tahrir, if we do a deal with asian economies... we have to do the deals first.
11:45 pm
we do a deal with asian economies... we have to do the deals firstlj we do a deal with asian economies... we have to do the deals first. i am sorry to sound sceptical but we saw that on the buses during the referendum campaign. do you think theresa may will keep to the timetable of triggering article 50? i can't see why not, if they vote then mps will go for it. they might try to turn on the odd
